Located in one of the country's premier and exclusive family resorts, The Sea Pines Plantation.
Year Purchased: 2008
About the owner: After vacationing in Sea Pines for years, we finally 'treated' ourselves to this home as a 25th wedding anniversary present to each other.
Why the Owner Chose Heritage Woods:
The Sea Pines Plantation is like no other vacation / resort community you will find. And Deer Run Lane puts you in the best location in the plantation. Just a short stroll to the beach and minutes by bike to South Beach, Harbour Town, or just about anywhere within the plantation. You quickly find yourself not wanting to use your car, but walk or bike everywhere. It is all about connecting with family, friends and the unique environment of the plantation.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This isn't a 'rental property' to us - it's our home! We want our guests to feel like they are staying in a special place, with the amenities you'd expect in a resort home, along with the charm and comfort of a true 'beach' house. As you can see in the pictures - our recent renovations, along with the open floor plan, will keep you comfortable and connected with family and the outdoors. Were right on one of the bike trails that connect the plantation. Imagine sitting at the dining room table, or on the screened porch, and having a fabulous view of the birds that flock to the lagoon, or the fish as they jump. Some evenings you will see deer slowly work their way through the area and disappear into the woodland area behind our home. The lagoon is great for taking the kids fishing or crabbing. All you need is a simple pole with a float, worms and you are on your way to making memories. We looked at so many homes in the area before we purchased this house and began its' transformation into Chateau Relaxo! You won't find a cleaner, more relaxed and well appointed, open and fun house in the area.
